Hello! How’s it going? Over here it’s the usual running and eating. And today I’m making a pit stop at CVS Pharmacy for some must haves for runners. I’m partnering with CVS Pharmacy to help spread the word about their exclusive CVS Health and Gold Emblem abound lines. Some of these products have been around for a while and some are new and improved. (Right now I’m trying some of their fragrance and dye free products, but I’ll cover that next month.)
I have a CVS about .26 miles away from my lil casa. And I pass another one on one of my favorite running routes. Oh, and one by my mom’s… basically they’re all over.
So if you are in need of a quick snack, emergency blister bandage or deodorant because you realize you’re making flowers wilt – you can probably find one near you.
Here are some things that are great to have in your Runner Toolbox that can help you before, during or after a run. But if you don’t have them handy you can get them super fast at CVS.
Must Haves for Runners from CVS
Sunblock – I use lotion for face / arms and spray for my legs.
Snacks – I ate one of the Mango & Strawberry bars this morning before I could snap a pic.
Joint Health Supplements
On the Run:
Travel sized deodorant / petroleum jelly / sunblock
Blister bandages / Mole Skin and similar items to keep blisters and cuts from stopping you
Post Run and Recovery:
Epsom Salt for a relaxing bath
Foot health items like – plantar fasciitis socks or a stretcher –> this is a common running injury and if it’s reoccurring you might want to consider something like this to help.
Emergency kit for sprains and strains – hopefully you’ll never need to use it, but it’s good to have.
Even more SNACKS – I like the Gold Emblem abound Sriracha Chickpeas and Trail Mix.

Question: Did I mention snacks? What is your favorite snack today?
Me… Um, I ate all the Sriracha chickpeas so maybe a granola bar!
